Today I am posting my first photo for "Bigger Picture Moments". Bigger Picture Moments appeals to me because it is a little more open and loose. There is no inspirational word or theme to embody--we are just encouraged to "view the bigger picture", whatever that means to us, and then post a story or a photo of a moment that captures a mood, thought or feeling that we want to share. (hopefully I got that right!)
So here is my first one--it is a photo of my Dad throwing a crab trap into the Barnegat Bay in NJ as the early evening sun sets on the horizon beyond him. I love the photo because it is so peaceful, and it captures the youthful, outdoorsy/fisherman side of him. I have wonderful memories of my Dad teaching me how to fish and crab during our summers on the bay when I was a little girl. The photo reminds me that my Dad, who just turned 70, is still active and happy and engaged in life. I am thankful for the time I got to spend with him on a short vacation last week. Yea Dad!
Each week, Bigger Picture Moments is hosted on a different blog. This week it is being hosted by Corinne, so head on over there if you want to play!
